How do I upgrade my 1map account?

Basic use of 1map is free. To access more advanced functionality, upgrade to a monthly subscription that suits your needs.

Basic 1map use

Basic use of 1map is free to all users. This includes viewing publicly available cadastre and aerial photography and 1map proprietary data such as the 1map Street Address Database, arguably the most reliable street address point database currently available in South Africa, as well as limited printing, exporting and editing functionality.

Advanced functionality

To access more advanced functionality, such as full colour printing of up to A0, custom layer importing, extensive exporting, viewing and downloading SG diagrams, etc. you would need to upgrade to a monthly subscription that suits your needs.

Subscriptions that you can upgrade to

Before you can upgrade, you first need to sign in to 1map with your username.

We offer packages such as Pro and Premium, which you can sign up for immediately.

You can view a quick functionality comparison between the Lite, Pro and Premium subscriptions here.

Enterprise is for large projects, custom workflows and applications, shared layers etc., which you can discuss with us for a tailored quote. 1map also has special access options for Academic use and specialises in Revenue enhancement for Local Municipalities.

You can upgrade from the subscriptions page or by clicking on the profile button in the top right of your 1map screen and then on the Upgrade my Subscription button:


Your upgrade details

The immediate upgrade to Pro or Premium will ask for your details that you would like to appear on your invoice, the day of the month on which you would like the monthly charge to be deducted, and confirmation that you accept our terms and conditions.
